The Space

This is like having your own small apartment (250 sf2 / 23m2) within a bigger apartment, and it’s perfect for short or long term vacation or business travel.

We are located on the 4th floor of a pre war building right across from Prospect Park and a 3 minutes walk from the subway: 20 min to Downtown Manhattan, 20 min to the beach. Cafes, restaurants, delis, pharmacy and supermarket are around the corner.

Once you walk through the apartment into your private space, you will find everything you need: a very spacious and bright room overlooking beautiful Prospect Park, with a comfortable full size bed, fresh sheets, a small kitchenette and a private bathroom including fresh towels, a hair dryer, soap and shampoo.
The kitchenette includes all brand new appliances: 2 hot plates, mini fridge, toaster, electric kettle and a french press.
You will find coffee, different teas, granola and milk for a simple but delicious breakfast.

Air conditioning, free wifi, 1 big closet, extra comforter, enough outlets + european converter. Laundry and elevator in the building. There are 2 bicycles you can borrow when we don’t use them.

Outside your door is a chalk board, where you can write messages to us and also let us know, if anything is missing (toilet paper, soap, breakfast items etc..)

You will live with us, our lovely roommate and our friendly and clean cat "Lion", which we’d like to keep out of your room.
We speak english, german and french and are happy to answer all your questions and recommend restaurants/bars/clubs etc to you.

Feel free to ask any questions,just set up a full profile and contact us directly.

Cheers, Caro + Al

Check In
  • Caro&Al were perfect hosts. The room was clean, tidy and confortable. They are very kind, if you want to visit New York, Caro&Al's place is a perfect accomodation.

  • Die liebevoll eingerichtete Unterkunft bei Caroline und Al schaut genauso aus wie auf den Fotos. Wir waren 7 Nächte Gäste und konnten so auch die Umgebung ein wenig kennenlernen. Im Zimmer gibt es einen kleinen Kühlschrank und eine kleine Kochecke. Milch, Kaffee und Müsli waren auch schon da und man konnte gemütlich mit heißen Kaffee in den Morgen starten.
    Caroline hat uns bei der Ankunft alle wichtigen Infos gegeben und hatten dadurch einen super Start in New York. Subway Plan im Zimmer ist sehr hilfreich :-) Die Subway Station ist gleich an der nächsten Straßenecke und die Q fährt zum Beispiel direkt zum Time Square. Es war örtlich gesehen eine gute Möglichkeit die Stadt aus einer anderen Perspektive kennenzulernen. Einerseits kann man in Brooklyn die netten Lokale und den Prospekt Park genießen und nur eine 20 minütige Subway Fahrt später sich im Zentrum von Manhatten mittreiben lassen. Wir waren sehr zufrieden und können diese Unterkunft nur weiterempfehlen. Danke Caroline und Alastair
    PS. Lion ist ein netter Kater

  • Carolyn was very friendly and hepful. The apartment photos are accurate, as is the description of the amenities. Although the room is quite spacious, it is housed within an old building with temperamental locks, sticky doors, wall sockets without cover plates, and generations of sloppy painting. As renters, Caro and Alistair can't do much about any of that. But if you're looking for a neater and more modern apartment, you might want to look elsewhere. But if the "bohemian" character of this place suits you, you'll find that the privacy, location, simple food prep arrangements, and hospitality all worth the reasonable rate.

  • We had an enjoyable stay. The room was nice and big, clean, and originally decorated. It included a fridge, plates, glasses et cetera, which was very convenient. We felt welcome. The neighbourhood seemed safe. Metro, prospect park and a grocery were nearby. Recommendable.

  • Our stay in the home of Caro & Al was great. We were so happy to be near out daughter in Brooklyn. We enjoyed the spacious room and especially the private bathroom. We liked our hosts the friendly kitty.

  • I loved staying at Caro + Al's place. They were really nice and answered all my questions. I booked this place last minute, and they responded to me quickly and was very flexible with letting me leave my baggage in and also checking out early in the morning to catch my train.

    The place is close to the Q train so it was easy access to Manhattan :)

    Overall, pleasant experience and would recommend it to people!

  • The photos are an accurate overview of the apartment. It is indeed a large spacious area, with a standard double bed. If you are used to Queen size beds, this may feel a little small, but was otherwise comfortable. There is no heat control, other than open windows which do let in street sirens and traffic noise, typical of New York. Some of the electrical outlets seemed a little overloaded and not firmly secured to the wall socket, but worked fine. Al's WIFI may be a little inconsistent for access but did work for us the second day. We didn't use the kitchenette area except for tea water, but if you were staying for several days, it would be helpful for making snacks or heating a meal on the hot plate.
    Location is the best, easy access to Brooklyn and even Manhattan sites.

  • Das Zimmer und angeschlossene Bad entsprechen vollkommen den Beschreibungen im Inserat. Vom Föhn über den Frühstücksbedarf bis zur Spülschüssel ist alles vorhanden Die beiden Gastgeber sind sehr nette, junge Menschen, die in jeder Hinsicht hilfsbereit waren und uns vielfach guten Rat gaben. Lion ist ein ungewöhnlicher und sehr aparter Kater, an dem wir ebenfalls viel Freude hatten. So war unsere New York-Reise ein wirkliches Erlebnis und ein voller Erfolg.
